LA Theater Review


The art of self-deprecation is beating the critic to the criticism in order to sidestep public embarrassment. Twenty-four-year-old writer-actor Anya Warburg takes that art to an audacious new level by trying to wring humor from the dilemma of being too young, too white, too "normal" and having lived too sheltered a life to be a compelling stage artist. Unfortunately her show supports that thesis with less than stellar results. Despite a sweet onstage presence and several mildly amusing anecdotes, there just isn't enough insight, incident or energy here to power a 70-minute performance. Director Debra de Liso deals Warburg a disservice by even allowing this out of the workshop.

Dorie Theater at the Complex, 6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood; CLOSED.
